What is CBD

What is CBD
Q: DOES CBD GET YOU “HIGH”?

Unlike THC, CBD is completely non-psychoactive (no negative side effects of “getting high”), and CBD can actually negate the psychological effects of THC. For our purposes and mission, we primarily focus on delivering CBD-infused products such as tinctures, edibles, and topicals to promote a healthy and active lifestyle.

Q: WHAT IS CBD AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

CBD can be found naturally occurring in the family of plants called cannabis. Hemp and marijuana both derive from the cannabis family. Although they have many similarities, there are several and distinct differences. 

Cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) naturally occur in hemp and marijuana, in addition to hundreds of other cannabinoids and terpenes (responsible for scents). Depending on which type of cannabis the cannabinoids are extracted from, you can achieve different yields of CBD and THC. Hemp extracts will contain a majority of CBD and very little THC versus marijuana extracts, which will contain more THC and little CBD.

Q: IS CBD REGULATED?

CBD is a self-regulating market in which companies have their products tested by a third-party laboratory that is registered with the department of agriculture.  These lab reports are accessible to consumers.  The testing process involves checking for purity levels and other indicators of quality, safety, and legitimacy.

Q: CAN I TAKE CBD WITH MEDICATIONS?

If you are currently taking medications, you should talk to your doctor before taking Cannabidiol.  Cannabidiol may interact with certain medications due to the fact that it suppresses a specific metabolite responsible for breaking down many commonly used medications.

Q: WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) was first discovered in the early 1990s when scientists investigated how THC, the main cannabinoid in marijuana, affected the body. Since this discovery, they found that the human body expressed a vast and complex network of cannabinoid (CBD) receptors and that the human body also makes endogenous CBD called anandamide that is critical in maintaining the central nervous system.

Two types of CBD receptors exist throughout the body. CBD1 receptors are expressed primarily in the brain (hypothalamus, hippocampus, and amygdala), the central nervous system, intestines, and many other important organs. Benefits from CBD1 receptor activation include relieving depression and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, decreasing intestinal inflammation, in addition to other benefits. CBD2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system throughout the body, which is critical in regulating the functions of the immune system. 

Overall, the ECS system is shown to promote overall homeostasis that can regulate all major systems in the body affecting everything from appetite, sleep, pain, inflammation, mood, memory, and reproduction. With so many receptors and potential uses and benefits for promoting overall health and function, the ECS and CBD remain some of the hottest researched topics today.

Q: CBD ISOLATE VS BROAD SPECTRUM VS FULL SPECTRUM

Cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) naturally occur in hemp, in addition to hundreds of other cannabinoids and terpenes. Depending on the strain of cannabis and the method used for extraction, the composition of the cannabinoid profile will differ. Unlike marijuana, which consists of much more THC than CBD, the hemp we grow yields more CBD than THC.  

Full-spectrum: Full spectrum CBD contains all terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids, including CBD and some THC*. *Note that Our CBD products are derived from hemp, therefore our THC content is below the legal limits of 0.3% THC.

Broad-spectrum: Broad spectrum is made by extracting THC from the full spectrum CBD. All essential oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids are retained.

CBD Isolate: CBD isolate is when only CBD is extracted from the oils, which yields the purest form of CBD. Because the terpenes are also stripped from the isolates, there should be no taste or smell, which makes it preferable to people who do not like the taste of broad and full-spectrum CBD.

Q: WHAT ARE TERPENES?

Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic molecules that are present in Cannabis and a wide variety of plants. Terpenes account for aromas and flavors produced by the essential oils of many types of plants. Terpenes induce distinct effects on the human body that vary between different types. Along with providing their own independent benefits, terpenes work together with cannabinoids to produce an array of effects and therapeutic benefits known as the entourage effect. 

Q: WHAT IS THE u0022ENTOURAGE EFFECTu0022?

The Entourage Effect is the synergetic effect that results when various natural components within a plant interact together within the human body to produce different, often stronger, effects than caused by any one of those components used alone. In the case of Cannabis, these various components include terpenes and cannabinoids.

Q: DOES CBD SHOW UP ON DRUG TESTS?

Because hemp belongs to the same cannabis family as marijuana, many new users face a common concern when trying CBD for the first time. Hemp and marijuana both produce CBD, but they are classified differently under the law based on their concentration of THC(Tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound that gives users a “high”. Hemp contains very low levels of THC, versus marijuana which can cause psychological effects that make marijuana illegal in some states. Drug tests are designed to detect only THC, not CBD. Depending on the type of CBD product used, only full-spectrum CBD (although only has trace amounts of THC) can show positive for THC if used over a long period of time. CBD isolate and broad-spectrum CBD do not contain any THC  and will not test positive for THC in drug tests. While full spectrum can deliver enhanced benefits from the full cannabinoid spectrum (the “entourage effect”), the possible presence of THC is a risk that should be avoided if you will be regularly drug tested.  f Cannabis these various components include terpenes and cannabinoids.

Q: IS CBD LEGAL?

In 2018, the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (aka the 2018 Farm Bill) removed hemp as a Schedule 1 substance (aka the illegal drug classification) and reclassified it as an “agricultural commodity”, thereby making it legal. The farm bill also legalized the sale, transportation, and possession of hemp-derived CBD products. As long as the CBD product is derived from hemp, it is legal in all 50 states, and the hemp must contain u003c0.3% THC, which all of our CBD-infused products are in compliance.

Q: WHAT IS THE BEST CBD DOSAGE?

Everyone is Different Dosage specific for you. The recommended starting dose should be based on your body weight. As with most medications, individuals with more body mass will require more CBD to experience its effects. A good starting point is to take 1-6mg of CBD for every 10 pounds of body weight. In a 1000mg bottle of CBD tincture, there are 30mls of oil. 1000mg/30ml =33.3mg/1ml for a 130 pound person: 1 to 6mg x 13 = 13mg to 78mg CBD for starting dose = about 1/3ml to 2 u0026 1/3ml. Start at a small dose and increase gradually to achieve the desired effect. Like with starting any new prescription medications or supplements, consult your healthcare provider to discuss potential drug interactions if you are on other prescription medications, if you are nursing or pregnant, or have a medical condition.

Q: WHICH DELIVERY METHOD IS BEST FOR ME?

CBD comes in a variety of delivery methods, and each one can be useful in its own way.  It really comes down to your preferences, and how you’d like to maintain a daily hemp routine.  We encourage you to give multiple delivery methods a try to find one that suits your needs.

Q: CAN I GIVE CBD TO MY PETS?

You should only give your pet a CBD product made especially for them, such as the products found in our Pets section.  Hemp is generally fine for pets, but only in specific milligram strength amounts.  Further, many CBD products made for humans contain ingredients that are unsafe for cats and dogs, such as certain essential oils.

Q: HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE CBD?

Ideally, you should take CBD on a daily basis.  This provides the endocannabinoid system with the support it needs to fully perform its job of balancing out the processes of the body.  Daily use is recommended by most hemp experts for this reason.

Q: CAN I TAKE MORE THAN ONE CBD PRODUCT PER DAY?

You can take multiple CBD products in one day.  Cannabidiol and other hemp compounds are non-toxic to the body, and generally, two doses of CBD in two different forms is perfectly acceptable.  If you’re just starting out with CBD, you should stick to one product for a few weeks before adding a new one to your routine.

Q: IS IT OK TO TAKE CBD FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME?

Cannabidiol can be taken daily for years without any known consequences.  Hemp has been widely studied, and it’s been found that long-term use is not associated with any ill effects.  Therefore, you can take CBD on a daily basis for as long as you see fit.

Q: IS CBD APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN?

If you wish to give a hemp product to your child, you must speak with their pediatrician.  It’s important that the CBD you give your child comes in a lower dosage amount or milligram strength to reflect their body weight.  If your child has any negative reaction to CBD, seek medical attention immediately.

Q: SHOULD CBD BE ORGANIC?

Organically grown hemp yields superior CBD products.  Organic growing methods avoid pesticides and other potentially toxic substances that can be harmful to the body and destructive to the stability of the hemp compounds.  Almost all CBD products on the market come from organic hemp.

Q: HOW SHOULD CBD BE STORED?

CBD products made with hemp extract can degrade after two years, and CBD flower products after six months.  Keep your CBD carefully sealed in an airtight container, and find a cool, dark, and dry place when not in use.  A cabinet, closet, or drawer is ideal.
